Arlovski vs Werdum and Cote vs Almedia are the types of fights im talking about.
That's what i can't stand. When a fighter looks like they are fighting for the decision. Playing it "safe" and doing just enough to get the win.

I don't mind fighters trying to win by decision but I hate when they try to just get by.

I mean there is a difference between a striker trying to do damage on the feet but being unwilling to try to finish on the ground and a striker who is just trying to score some points and has no interest in actually exchanging with his opponent and doing damage.

-People that think being on TUF means they are a bad fighter

-Fighters that are overly evasive

-Ground fighters refusing to exchange at all

-Strikers that don't have a ground game

-Cro Cops current situation

-The fact that Dream might be 1 show away from no longer existing

-Everyone overrating BJ Penn

- People that hate on Kimbo because he hasn't fought elite level competition yet. An integral part of any fighter in the early stages of their career is to promptly gain experience, and while Ken Shamrock may be handicapped as a fighter, he still has name recognition and it's the best possible match-up they could feed Kimbo right now
- Organization vs. Organization debates are foolish and completely irrational
- Blind fanboys that praise fighters imprudently (BJ's nuthuggers are the worst...)
- Mixed Martial Arts not 'Ultimate Fighting'

People on the internet who hate every other poster on the internet j/k

Fighters who suddenly get hit by suck
Weight cutting
Fighters who score a few light punches then dance around waiting for a decision
Pride dying

Fans booing and I despise it when fighters try not to lose rather than trying to win. I dont mind decisions as long as the fighters give it there all.

Thanks to Plazz for the awesome sig

Show him respect

-People who wear tapout or affliction.

-The constant stream of TUF's, it needs a break.

-Referring to MMA as UFC, such as my friends asking, "hey want to fight UFC this saturday after the event?"

-And just to change it up, MMA fans who think MMA is the epitome of skill or athleticism, or that it being the closest to street fighting is at all relevant.

Serra won TUF via foot stomps over Lytle. Terrible decision.

1. How long it takes to make good fights happen. Which leads into,
2. Favouritism shown to certain fighters by organisations epsecially UFC.
3. Judging and judges.
4. Steve Mazzagatti
5. Edith
6. Joke fights. ie; Silva vs Irvin.
7. "UFC on Demand". If I buy the PPV show me all the damn fights.
8. Sadollah's forced persona. Is he autistic?
9. Celebrity spotting on PPV's. Can't the UFC aim higher than David Spade and the Rednut from that 70's show?
10. Goldberg still not knowing what he is talking about.
